Yes, huskies are smart. Huskies are willing to listen so they are fast learners of different commands. And after a command is learned, they are smart enough to know to keep obeying those commands from the alpha in their pack.
A husky’s intelligence is very noticeable through their independence and stubbornness. Although huskies are pack dogs and will listen to commands from an alpha figure, they can still be stubborn and critically think about whether or not to carry out those commands.
Huskies were even chosen by the American army during World War 2 because of their intelligence. Huskies learned new commands easily and showed eagerness to carry out different tasks.
